Marriage proposals are one of the most intimate gestures you can make. Whether it’s outlandish or simple, popping the question is one of those moments that sticks with you for the rest of your life. So why would you want to turn your big moment into a silly trend?
Apparently one such trend involves using an avocado to pop the question, Mashable reports.
The idea is to keep your significant other in the dark by carrying around an inconspicuous avocado, rather than a ring box. Once their guard is down, the proposer gets on their knees and pops the question — the ring embedded inside the de-pitted fruit.
We asked the Foodbeast team what they thought of this ridiculous trend and here’s what they had to say.
I’d do it in an avocado shell if the person I was proposing to was super into avocados. But not the flesh, that just gets messy.
The worst trend I’ve seen all year. Humanity must be stopped.
That’s the dumbest thing ever this side of the Flowbee.
That’s the most basic bitch proposal I’ve ever seen. I hope she responds with a toast.
As for myself, I’m just wondering how he’ll feel about avocados if the marriage doesn’t work out. I’d hate to have something so delicious tainted for life.
